BIEL

Tributary

2014. Saturday, July 26th at 7pm opened a site specific work by Joe Biel. Raised in Des Moines and a Drake alum, Joe is an accomplished Los Angeles artist who exhibits nationally and internationally, has received numerous prestigious awards including two Pollock-Krasner Foundation grants and a Bemis residency.

Biel will be creating a site specific triptych titled Tributary. Painted directly on the walls of Transient Gallery, Tributary continues two works Biel has recently completed: ‘Sentry’ at University of California Riverside and ‘Valedictorian’ at the Torrance Art Museum. Tributary draws from personal associations and art history, and begins with the rush of smaller bodies of water that feed a greater whole. It describes the moments and fragments of beauty that sustain us through the chaos of daily life, and encourages a different and poetic sense of wholeness in the face of absurdity.

Tributary is viewable by appointment until August 26th, 2014. Send an email to schedule.
